Steeped in tradition. Engaging the present. Anticipating the future.
Since its founding in 1901, UVA School of Nursing has led the nation in nursing education, cultivating, creating and celebrating excellence in health care. With programs ranked among the nation's most exceptional, we're preparing the next generation of practitioners, researchers and teachers for the fast-paced, constantly evolving field of health care.
Whether you're in high school, dreaming about your future, already immersed in the working world, or considering a mid-career pivot, we invite you to join our dynamic community of lifelong learners.
Many of our classes are small, giving students direct access to faculty scholars at the top of their professional game. No matter their program, every student conducts research, independently, or as part of a team. Understanding that we all learn best by doing, the School routinely offers students dynamic simulations in our high-tech labs, offering hands-on learning that's especially relevant given practitioners' need to overcome new challenges on a daily basis.
Connecting with and learning across disciplines makes better practitioners and researchers. Our integration with the UVA Health System offers students next-door access to world-class researchers and facilities, including the UVA Medical Center, consistently ranked among the nation's best hospitals and Virginia's #1 hospital.
Anchored in clinical excellence, robust research and thoughtful, evidence-based practice, the School of Nursing ardently believes that educating exceptional practitioners "takes a village." Take the next step in your career, and join the community at the School of Nursing. We're waiting for you.
